Priyanka Chopra Looks Back at Avoiding a Wardrobe Malfunction While Winning Miss World at Age 18

Here’s something you might not know about Priyanka Chopra: she won the Miss World competition in 2000 when she was only 18!

The actress, now 38, just opened up in a new interview about how she avoided a wardrobe malfunction after being crowned the winner of the competition nearly 20 years ago.

“The year 2000 and I won Miss World, my dress was taped on to me. By the time I won at the end I was sweating so much ’cause it was so stressful that the entire tape came off,” Priyanka said on People in 10.

She added, “The whole time while I was doing my walk or whatever when I won, I kept my hands like this in a namaste, which people thought was a namaste but actually was holding my dress up. So uncomfortable!”

Priyanka recently signed on to an exciting movie with some big stars!
